Frequently Asked Questions

An explainer video does exactly what it says it will do - it explains a concept, process, product, and/or a whole host of other topics, in order to promote a business’s product offerings or services. Examples of explainer videos include product demos and company videos. A few ingredients set explainer videos apart from other videos. Here are a few key traits of an explainer video:
 
  • Short
  • Simple
  • Focused on target audience
  • Uses animated characters
  • Uses professional voice over
  • Uses brand colors
You can very easily make an explainer video by walking through the following steps:
 
  • Step 1

    Write the video script: The most important element in an explainer video is the script. Even if your video has the best graphics and animation, it will still need a solid script to back it up.

  • Step 2

    Recording the voice over: Hire a professional voice over artist to get the job done right the first time.

  • Step 3

    Video production: Hire an animator/video producer to produce your video and put the video and vocal track all together.

  • Step 4

    Distribute your explainer video: Find relevant platforms like social media to get your video out there for all to enjoy

  1. Look for how the voice actor interpreted your artistic direction

    A great voice actor will be able to take your words and put their own personal and engaging interpretation on it to give the best final read.

  2. Notice how the voice actor delivered your script

    Taking direction means being able to adhere to script markups (such as pronunciation indicators) with ease and adapt to the flow of the project.

  3. Assess if their vocal qualities match the tone of your messaging and content

    The read should be engaging, as well as draw your attention to the importance of the material. After all, most explainer videos are only 1-3 minutes, a short time to reel in your audience.

  4. Listen for added dimension that enhances your message

    When you decide to use a professional voice actor, you know that your video is in safe hands. This is because they have the ability to add character and personality in a way that will give your read an extra dimension. Their interesting voice delivers enlightenment and complexity in a way that only a trained voice can. They will have your viewers hanging on to every word and create excellent brand awareness.

  5. Listen to their demos

    When you post a job on Voices.com, you can get free custom voice over auditions using your radio script. However, you can also find radio voice actors by browsing business voice actors and listening to demos.

Some sources indicate that the cost of an explainer video can range from $700-$72,000 depending on the length of the explainer video, as well as any special animations or graphics that need to be created.

Here are some costs required to create an explainer video to take into account:

  • Hiring Creatives
  • Sourcing music, sound effects and professional voice actors
  • Equipment
  • Software
  • Time
Your explainer video script sets the tone for your voice over, and video voice over is crucial. Start your script by ensuring your key message and value proposition appear in the first 30 seconds of the video. You should use simple language and avoid alienating your audience with any technical jargon and opt for a more casual tone. If appropriate, infusing a touch of humor in your script can really go a long way to sell your message.
You want to keep explainer videos short. Specifically, less than 2 minutes is an ideal length for explainer videos.
